There seems to be record-breaking feat for just about everything these days. Who knew there was world record for making tallest stack of M&Ms? Well, there is, and record has been broken. British civil engineer Will Cutbill, 23, attempted balance-defying challenge while trying to stave off boredom of being cooped up during COVID lockdown. He used all his architectural and design skills, with dose of physics know-how, to stack pile of the multi-colored button-shaped chocolates five M&Ms high. Many people might think that is beatable record but Mr Cutbill challenged anybody to try and better his balancing accomplishment.

Mr Cutbill spoke about why he set out to break M&M stacking record. He said: "I've had lifelong ambition to break Guinness World Records title. I've always wanted one. I've bought book every year and have always dreamed of one day reading my name in it." He said he got idea while he was partaking of his favourite chocolaty confection during lockdown. He was curious to know how many of the chocolates he could put on top of each other. He said: "It takes time, but if you stick at it, you will find way to do it." He added: "This has inspired me. I want to let my creative juices flow and see what else I may be good at and then attack it with same determination I did here."
